My name is Simeng Sun (孙思萌), I am a first year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at UMass Amherst advised by Prof. Mohit Iyyer. I was very fortunate to have worked with Prof. Ani Nenkova while I was a master's student at UPenn, Nitin Madnani, Aoife Cahill and Martin Chodorow while I was an intern at ETS, and Prof. Hui Zhang while I studied at Beihang University.
Ph.D. student in Computer Science, UMass Amherst Aug. 2019 - now
M.S.E in Computer and Information Science, UPenn Aug. 2017 - May 2019
B.E. in Computer Science and Technology, Beihang University Sep. 2013 - Jun. 2017
Exchange student, Trinity College Dublin Sep. 2015 - Jan. 2016
I am generally interested in natural language processing and machine learning. In the past, I did research on author name disambiguation, text summarization and named entity recognition. More recently, I focus on language modeling and machine translation.
